The Greater Glasgow Transportation Study - 55 Years On!

September 17, 2021

In this edition of the Glasgow Motorway Archive podcast we are discussing the Greater Glasgow Transportation Study, first published in the late 1960s!

Join us as we discuss one of the largest transportation studies ever undertaken in the UK. We consider its proposals for a road network and public transport system fit for the (then) future and how hundreds of people worked to make it a reality. We reveal a few surprises and discuss its impact 60 years on.

With Stuart Baird and John Hassall.
